I'm here to say, that as of right now, I haven't had an honest to goodness cigarette in 5 days. 5 DAYS!!!
I purchased an electronic cigarette. One of those thingies that emits water vapor loaded with nicotine so you can smoke wherever you want. It's supposed to be just like smoking, only better for you and allowed in restaurants and shit.
Liars!! It is NOT just like smoking. It's a sad, shameful shadow of what smoking was. No burn. No taste. And certainly no satisfied "I just had a cigarette" feeling.
But it's better than cold turkey. There was some real will power involved. I'm pretty much over it now. I've got my little vapor stick, and that's just fine by me.
After 3 days I could already breathe so much easier. I'm pretty freaking proud of myself. And since no one in my life seems to be all too impressed, I thought I'd tell the 3 people that read my blog.
Ok....I've made up those 3 people, but 3 imaginary cheerleaders are better than the skeptics I live with. So, GO ME!! WOOT!!
Update: Make that 5 weeks......Go Me!!!!
